Helene has been running from the Coven for a long time. While she plans to keep avoiding the Coven as much as possible she does help the Hunters when she can. At least until a handsome warlock changes her mind and is willing to stand beside her against the Coven.
“I will stand with you in the most violent of storms. I will stand with you to face the deadliest of foes. I will stand with you in the calmest ocean. Because you are in my heart.”
I adored Helen and Jarin’s story. These two were adorable and heartbreaking at the same time. I loved the choices these two had to make and their openness with each other. Helene was one tough cookie. Her past is heartbreaking and she never really had time to mourn the trauma that happened before she went on the run. Helene is a strong heroine who you can’t help but love.
Jarin has been the Varroki we have seen the most of in this series. He is a quiet soul that is filled with a surprising amount of compassion. While he is very powerful he isn’t arrogant about it or flashy, which made me love him even more. I loved Jarin’s “friends”, Valdr and Andi as well. They made perfect companions in the fight against the Coven.
The overall story progressed a lot in this book. Sybbyl dealt a huge blow to the Hunters and Varroki at the end of this book and it changed everything. This was unexpected and heartbreaking and I both loved it and hated it. I really can’t wait to read the next book because I need to know how the Hunters deal with all the changes that happened.
